v DISCOUNT PRICING: Your BEST racing deal is to purchase OUR PKC ONLINE PRE-ENTRY PACKAGE – your race entry and mandatory PKC-stamped race tires at http://www.skusastore.com with a credit or debit card for just $325. This price is only good online before the cutoff of this Tuesday 2/2 at midnight. If you would like to pay by cash or check at the track, you can pre-register with our DOWNLOADABLE entry form and still save time and money! Just fill it out and send it to us prior to the 2/2 midnight deadline! A walk-up race entry is still available at the track for $160 (plus tires). Detailed pricing is posted on the Event Page.
v SPEC FUEL/OIL: The spec fuel is MS98 for all classes (C12 optional for the stock Honda classes), and the spec oil is Motul 2T Grand Prix. We no longer sell these products for our PKC events, so please plan to get your necessary supply from your local kart shop. The Buttonwillow TIRE & FUEL SHOP on site also now has these products for sale.
v ANNUAL SKUSA MEMBERSHIP IS MANDATORY: Don’t forget to purchase or renew your SKUSA membership, as an active SKUSA racing license is required to race!
